Make your own Blue and White Easter Eggs to match your decor. Mine have a bit of a Chinoiserie or Blue Willow flair. You can whip out a half dozen of these gorgeous DIY Easter Eggs while watching a movie.
Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I chose to create Blue and White DIY Easter Eggs with the flair of Chinoiserie or Blue Willow patterns.

How To Make Blue & White Easter Eggs
I have long admired Blue Willow and Chinoiserie designs but only last year began to add the colors to my home decor. I am not really a big fan of the Chinese pagodas but mostly just love the bright blue and white color combination.
Of course the most frugal way to update your home decor is to Do It Yourself! In the spirit of DIY, I stepped out of my comfort zone to make these Blue and White Easter Eggs. My inspiration Pin is right here.
You only need two things:
- White Plastic Fake Eggs
- Bright Blue Permanent Marker
My new blue and white eggs may easily be described as Folk Art and the last thing I would consider myself to be is an artist of any sort. Thank goodness for Google Image search!
The first thing I searched was how to draw paisley because I love paisley so much! I selected the easiest tutorial I could possibly find.
Drawing a simple paisley design wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. It was fun because you can make each one different. There are no rules, just have fun with it.
My egg designs are all combinations of ideas inspired by the plethora of images I found on both Google and Pinterest.
Joann’s had all of their Easter items half price plus I had a 20% off my total purchase coupon.
Their plain white eggs are a bit better quality for crafting in my opinion. They are a solid piece, not two pieces and a thicker plastic. Don’t forget to take your coupon!
My choice of marker is a Sharpie. The color is perfectly vibrant for these Blue and White Easter Eggs.
You can’t beat a craft with only two items and very little effort but tons of pop for Spring home decor.
I treated myself to an Antique Mall shopping trip in search of the perfect white bowl. Hobnail was my hope but I didn’t really expect to find it. It was just plain exciting to find the perfect Hobnail while bowl for my new Blue and White Easter Eggs!
Did you see my Faux Hobnail Vase from a Pin Challenge last year? Go here for that easy tutorial.
- Fake plastic white Easter Eggs
- Find your inspiration piece(s) for the patterns you will be drawing onto your eggs. I used Pinterest and Google image search.
- Draw the designs onto the eggs using the Permanent marker.
The marker dries quickly.
